The workshop will break several myths about advocacy and will include video-presentation of advocacy tactics implemented worldwide. While every advocacy campaign starts with an idea or interest, we will examine how to get politics on our side when we have an interest/ idea to promote.
During the session we will analyse what motivates advocacy under different political regimes.
Participants of the session will work in groups to determine the place of interests and ideas in advocacy. The session will conclude with identification of successful cases of advocacy as well as lost opportunities.
Language: the workshop will be conducted in English
